design classes



this spring at the claw foot tub we are launching our new workshop series, 'living with intention'. this series is going to include a number of different design related workshops:

'design your own kitchen' is meant to accomplish just that-- at the end of this six week class participants will have a portfolio that they can hand directly to contractors to get estimates. this is a hybrid class-- i will be visiting participant's homes just before the class starts, so that i can directly help them to design their new kitchens. we will have discussions, material samples, and handouts on how to design a kitchen-- so that by the end, everyone's portfolio will include floor plans, cabinet and counter choices, flooring, fixtures, lighting, and appliance choices.

'organize' is currently a four week class meant to explore the things in our lives that leave us with clutter and mess in our homes. we will attempt to unpack our emotional/psychological suitcases, so to speak, to create space for a new way of living. also each week we will walk step by step through different organizing techniques for different rooms/tasks in our home-- leaving participants with the tools to tackle their clutter/ chaos problems.

'decorating with intention' is a one day workshop on how to decorate, clean, and clear your space with intention. this is both a decorating class, and a workshop on energy in our homes. we will touch on the ways that different cultures address intention in their homes-- briefly discussing feng shui, balinese design, wabi sabi, vastu-- and others. this is going to be a fun class and it includes lunch!

'color' is a one day workshop meant to uncomplicate the complicated world of color in our homes. we will discuss color theory, color variations, the importance of color, the subjectiveness of color-- all with the intention of helping you to make decisions that make you happier in your life with color. this is going to be a fun class and it will also include lunch!

'design your own bathroom' is just what it sounds like-- make your bathroom more beautiful, functional, and a place you love to be in. this is another opportunity to get a designer room, but at a group rate. this is going to be a three week class that will include discussions of materials, water, fixtures, and layout, and that will leave participants with a portfolio of their plans, ready to be given to a contractor for an estimate.

all the workshops will include a folder for participants with lists of recommended stores, resources, and contractors for various design and construction needs.

we hope you will join us!
